    Trump's latest twitter rant also hilariously undercuts one of the Primary arguments Trump apologists make about reelecting him. "Well, we don't like him either, but he appoints good judges". Because according to Trump, he doesn't, and the supreme court still hates him. Gorsuch voted to protect Trans rights (Still not exactly sure why that is a partisan issue).

    But they don't seem to recognize that in his political appointees either. Trump appointing people that later spit in his face somehow doesn't mean that Trump is bad at picking people.

    And now Matt Gaetz is claiming this House page from 2016 is his adopted son.

    A 38 year old single man "adopted" a ~20 year old? That seems... interesting.

    Meh, he could have adopted him then. I need more information on this one.

    Although the fact he's using his adopted (real or not) son as a crutch is already stupid enough.

    So many comments on how it's ok to come out and that he can't be fired for it anymore.

    Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked the Trump administration's attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era program that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation.

    The 5-4 ruling was written by Chief Justice John Roberts and joined by Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor.
    In penning the opinion, Roberts once again sided with the liberals on the bench in a momentous dispute that will infuriate judicial conservatives who are still bitter that he once provided the deciding vote to uphold Obamacare.
    The opinion is the second time in a week when the Supreme Court -- bolstered with two of President Donald Trump's nominees -- has ruled against the Trump administration. Monday, the court said LGBTQ Americans are protected under the Civil Rights Act.

    The ruling emphasizes that the administration failed to provide an adequate reason to justify ending the DACA program.

    "We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies," Roberts wrote in the majority opinion. "'The wisdom' of those decisions 'is none of our concern.' We address only whether the agency complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action."[/quote]

    Supreme Court blocks Trump from ending DACA[/QUOTE]

    In his majority opinion, Roberts (praised be) called the decision to terminate the program an “arbitrary” and “capricious” violation of the law. Those two phrases are terms of art, and in using those Roberts and the majority opinion are calling Trump to the table for his run on reversing all things Obama. Obviously, that's not what the opinion said, but it's certainly a heads up of what Trump can expect in the future.

    I just wonder why he’s been hiding their relationship all these years. Certainly sounds suspect.

    Well, Florida adoption records are sealed so we'll have to take Gaetz word on this.

    I don't believe Gaetz until he provides receipts.

    Yeah, the feels on this don't seem right at all. The kid apparently came to Capital Hill as a page in 2016, and is now living with an unmarried Congressman? Gaetz didn't say he adopted him, and even if he did that would be weird as shit for a kid that old. Typically 20 year olds are not adopted, because why the hell would you?

    Gay doesn't bother me. Grooming does. Page to Congressman is not an equal relationship, nothing about this seems ok.

    Unrelated, apparently Trump is launching a new episode of the ongoing witch hunt in the White House. This time he wants to know on who snitched about his bunker inspection.

    Someone needs to man up and tell him it was Stephen Miller. It probably wasn't, but it would be funny to watch him get escorted off the grounds.

    Adopted? Maybe just coincidence, but I'd say he strikes a resemblance to Gaetz through certain markers.

    inb4 actually an illegitimate love child >_>

    If not, good for him. Shame he's being used right now.

    Wasn't the kid born in Cuba? Gaetz said he was. Seems like actual parentage is very unlikely, so I dismissed it. Maybe though, who knows with this bunch.

    I’m kinda curious about nepotism violations with regards to Nestor being a house page.

    With that decision, Republicans in Washington probably just took a deep sigh of relief. The last thing they want to see this close to the election is tens of thousands young Latinos protesting in the street.

    I gotta say, Supreme Court surprises me. Either they are not as conservative as we thought, or Trump is even worse judge of a character than we thought or... They actually are people who care about the rule of law.

    OMG that would be the best. Long game, though, we wouldn't actually want either of them on SCOTUS - they are both too old. We'd want 40-ish aged judges in those seats.

    But yeah, maybe initially nominate them both, just for the reeeeee.

    I think Billdo Barr would be a close second for funny.

    This is exactly what we want to see from the Deplorable-in-Chief. Him showing his deeply seated paranoia and channeling 1940's Hitler culling his Generals is a perfect picture as we swing into November.

    It is interesting, especially Roberts coming down "on the side of liberals". But really the SCOTUS when they are making their decisions, can choose from a litany of reasons to rule for or against a case, even coming out of left field sometimes. Those left field opinions don't usually garner a majority opinion, but they do count when tallying up the vote count.
